Austentesque blogging day: An Interview With Miss Georgiana Darcy

Austentesque blogging day: An Interview With Miss Georgiana Darcy

I am thrilled to be a part of the Austenesque Reviews August Extravaganza. The month has been filled with amazing essays, quizzes & games, giveaways galore, reviews, interviews, and so much more. It isn’t too late to join in the fun! The list of prizes being given away during the month is beyond belief.

Looking down that loooonnnnggg list you will see that Sourcebooks has donated a copy of The Trouble With Mr. Darcy and I have donated a copy of Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy AND a precious Advanced Reader Copy of Miss Darcy Falls in Love which will not be released until November 1. Is that amazing or what? Well, it gets better. Here, on my blog contribution for the Austenesque Extravaganza I am giving away another ARC of Miss Darcy Falls in Love! This one will be for those who comment here. Extra points are given for posting about this blog and/or the Austenesque Extravaganza on Twitter, Facebook, your blog, or anywhere else you can think of. The more the better!! Just click the links below or add to your blog, and then let me know within the comment field. I will choose the winner on August 31, so check back after that. Thanks for contributing to the success of Meredith’s wonderful homage to Jane Austen.

Today is my post for Traveling Tuesday. Last year I wrote a whimsical piece titled An Interview With the Darcys as part of the blog tour for my third novel. This is a follow-up of sorts, although the other does not have to be read first. An Interview With the Darcys can be read on The Library at Pemberley, the link HERE:

Keeping to the same theme, now it is time for Georgiana Darcy, Mr. Darcy younger sister, to be interviewed. I hope you enjoy this equally whimsical tale. If you do, be sure to comment at Austenesque Reviews and here on my blog.

  1. I can’t wait for the new book! This is my favorite series and I can’t wait to read about Georgiana.

    • Stalking is fine by me! At least when it involves sharing the news. Go for it, Faith Hope!

  2. Great interview, Sharon. Before your books I had read other P&P continuances but now I find that all the other books just don’t touch me like yours do. (Not to mention a little confusing to get an entire story line out of your head when it’s already there!). My mom and I just booked a trip to England for March 2012 and it’s your books that have inspired me to see in person what I have imagined so clearly thanks to your books. We only have 4 days so we’re not going to get to Chatham but some equally as lovely palaces in the Cotswolds are on our list. Thanks for all your writing! I’m anxiously awaiting the next one!

    And if I had a blog, I’d totally link to this. 🙂

    • Lynn, How fabulous that you are heading to England! That is still my dream destination. We had hoped to make it this year but a wedding intervened. Maybe next year will be my golden year. I know the places I would HAVE to see, but there are also about a couple dozen others I would badly WANT to see. I know it is impossible to visit them all though.

      Have fun! And thank you for your kind words regarding my novels. I am happy that you have enjoyed them.

  3. Wow! I came over here to put a little comment about another gem from Sharon, and note there are 45 comments! That says it all about your writing skills Sharon, everyone gets so much enjoyment and this interview with Miss Darcy is no exception!

    • Thanks to everyone. I appreciate the kind words. I had great fun writing this interview and giving Georgiana a chance to shine. She is a lovely young lady – my Georgiana, that is – with a playful sense of humor. I hope everyone loves the life and love I have given her.

  4. As usual, I enjoyed it! I am anxiously awaiting the new book. So ready for Georgiana’s story. Yours are my favorites of the JAFF so I’m always ready for more!

  5. Great interview, Sharon. I love it to bits and can’t wait to find out about Miss Darcy’s adventures in Paris.

    Blog about your giveaway here. Austenesque Extravaganza is also posted at my blog. I will post in my FB later.

    As an aside, it’s been awhile since I last visited your blog and I see that you have change the design and template. I think it is the same template as AuAu but with different designs and images. I love it.

    • Thanks for sharing this on your blog, Luthien. Cross promo is wonderful and very helpful.

      Good eye on the website! I designed my website and Austen Authors using the same program – Artiseer – so the general layout is similar. I had fun being as creative as possible!

  6. I really like Randall and Kitty! I love how they met and that he calls her “kitten”. I hope to see more of them.

  7. Hi Sharon!

    What a marvelous tidbit of an interview! I can’t wait for the book to come out to read all about Georgiana’s adventures and story!

    Thank you so much for keeping us so wonderfully entertained with all your Darcy Saga novels. I have enjoyed reading every one of them!

    Take care and God Bless.

  8. Oh, Sharon! That was a great tidbit of an interview! I loved it!! I can’t wait until the book comes out so I can read all about Georgiana’s adventures and story! Thank you so much for keeping us so entertained with your wonder Darcy Saga novels! I’ve loved reading every one of them. Take care and God Bless.

    Esther

  9. Oh, that was a fantastic interview! I’d love to read the rest of Miss Darcy’s story–can’t wait til it comes out!

  10. Sharon, once again a fantastic interview. You are perfectly connecting interviews, books and our beloved Darcy family!
    It never gets boring, there´s always something new and something surprising!

    Thank you!
    Susanne

  11. i have enjoyed reading the interview with Georgiana and I can’t wait for your new book. I love all of the characters and will look forward to reading more on each of them, especially Lizzy and Darcy. keep up the good work.

    • I was just poking around in your website, and have to say that I LOVE all of the photo galleries!

      • Thanks for sharing the link, Valerie. I do appreciate that.

        Yes, my galleries are pretty awesome. I have been accumulating images for many years now and still add on to them now and again. I love historic images and being able to see what a place or thing looked like helps me so much in my writing.

  12. I just love stories about Georgiana. She is one of my favorite minor characters (Col Fitz and Kitty being the others). I love the Darcy Saga and can’t wait to read Miss Darcy Falls in Love.

    The Austenesque Extravaganza has been so much fun! And I look in at Austen Authors pretty much daily. It’s almost anniversary party time. 😀

  13. Very nice, Sharon! I love the way Georgiana dances around the story of Wickham, and the whole concept of Jane’s cousin going around interviewing people is delightful.

    • Georgiana has developed a spunky attitude as she has grown up. Not the mouse any longer. At least not MY Georgiana. :Wink:

  14. Sharon, great minds run along the same lines. My new novel is entitled The Disappearance of Georgiana Darcy. It’s a mystery, very much in the order of The Phantom of Pemberley. Therefore, we shan’t be competing. I do so hate it when that happens. Thanks for the lovely excerpt.

    • Never a competition between us, Regina. The world does not tire of great Austen, I don’t think. Some would say secondary characters are not as beloved as Lizzy and Darcy, and I suppose that is true to a degree, but I think people do love the other amazing characters that Jane gave us.

      Long live the secondary characters!

  15. I loved reading this post! I happen to be a fan of Miss Georgiana and I’ve often thought that a novel from her point of view would be very interesting. So needless to say I would love to win a copy. Thank you for the post and giveaway! I also follow Austen Authors frequently so I’ll keep Sept 5th marked on my calender!

    • Wonderful, Margaret! We are planning some fun stuff at Austen Authors – especially with the giveaways!

      Best of luck in all the drawings, mine included.

  16. I’ve read and greatly enjoyed all of your books, Sharon. I can’t wait for “Miss Darcy Falls in Love.” She’s certainly grown as a character in your books, and it will be interesting to see her develop even more. The interviews with Jane Austen’s cousin are so clever!

    • Thanks Deborah. I need to think who else my intrepid reporter can interview! Perhaps Dr. Darcy at some point, hmmm?

      • That would be great! I love Dr. Darcy. As a former reporter, I know he would be a great interview, with lots of colorful quotes. I would ask him about India (of course) and his pioneering medical views — and his opinion of men’s fashion!

  17. I’ve always loved a good sequel to Pride and Prejudice, but your novels are spellbinding. I get trapped in the novel and completely ignore people around me. In between the last book and the upcoming book, I have decided to read the entire Jane Austen collection by date of publication. I’ve been quite literally obsessed. Your books are fantastic and I’m counting down the days till November! Thanks for these little extras.

    • Obsession is good, Lacey. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. LOL!

      Thank you so much. You have warmed my heart with your praise. Now I am blushing!

    • Wow! Thank you so very much, Sharon. You are wonderful. I appreciate the mega shout-out! You have a lovely website and I am honored to be on there. :THANK-YOU:

  18. Thanks Mary. I really enjoyed giving her a life and voice of her own. She has become quite special to me – her and her fella!

  19. Austenesque has been delish & your contribution is a lovely addition!
    looking so forward to reading more of Georgiana’s adventures in France and in love…
    thank you for whetting our appetites ”)

    frm one Sharon to another ~

    • Hello Sharon! It is a terrific name, isn’t it? LOL! I rarely meet another Sharon so it is a pleasure.

      Thanks for sharing Austenesque on your blog. Meredith is doing a great thing with her event and I am honored to be a part of it. Your support is much appreciated.

  20. Ah, thanks Cindy! What a lovely thing to say. It is very nice to know that a reader enjoys one of my novels so thoroughly. An author can wish for nothing more.

    Thanks, Blodeuedd, for taking on the task of reading and reviewing my novel. I hope you will be pleased.

    Much appreciated, Jakki! It is a great story, if I say so myself! LOL!

    Good luck to all in the drawing.

  21. Lovely interview, Sharon! I am looking forward to Georgiana’s story and finding out about her true love she finds in Paris!

  22. Sharon,
    Everything you write blows me away! Matt says when I’m reading one of your books; I have a look on my face like I’m not even present…that I’ve travelled in time back to Pemberley and am the proverbial “fly on the wall”.
    Thank you for this new book. I’ve had it pre-order since it was announced and I just know it will be fabulous! <3

I love to hear from you!
